The Eagle Elite Series
by: Rachel Van Dyken
When I won the annual Eagle Elite College Scholarship lottery, I was thrilled. After all, my grandma had just died and I wanted to take care of my aging grandpa — he couldn’t be a farmer in Wyoming forever. And graduating from Eagle Elite meant opportunity.
But I wasn’t counting on meeting Nixon.
Nor was I counting on the rules of the Elect.
1. Do not touch The Elect.
2. Do not look at The Elect.
3. Do not speak to The Elect.
And worst of all? Don’t discover the secret they hide, because in the end, you may just realize… it’s about you.
Rachel Van Dyken is the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today Bestselling author of regency and contemporary romances. When she’s not writing you can find her drinking coffee at Starbucks and plotting her next book while watching The Bachelor.
She keeps her home in Idaho with her Husband and their snoring Boxer, Sir Winston Churchill. She loves to hear from readers!

4 roses – mafia romance – secret love
I clearly was not prepared for an intense modern day type of Romeo and Juliet secret romance. Totally caught off guard and glued to the plot as it thickened with suspenseful characters full of snotty mean girls and dangerous bad boys. Yet through it all I fell for some swoon worthy alpha male heroes who would give their lives to protect their family and friends. Honor bound and sworn to secrecy the Elite are a possessive clique who will ensure the safety of their kin.
“Hurt is everywhere; as humans we practically drown in its essence, yet we all pretend like it doesn’t exist.” ~Trace Rooks~
4 secret forbidden hearts – couples ‘bound’ by love
Clever secrets are being revealed as this “familia” comes together to protect and cherish their own kind. Pasts are remembered, feelings are shaped and this couple is finally portraying their true feelings for each other even at the high cost of the safety and recognition of their Mafia Families.
“Sometimes… it’s the emotional wounds that hurt the most. Cuts heal, bruises fade – but broken hearts? They carry scars for a lifetime.” ~Trace Alfero~
“I need you like I need my heart to pump blood through my body, like I need air to breathe, like we need gravity. You are my gravity. Being with you makes me feel centered and whole.” ~Nixon Abandonato~
4 emotional sexy lips – young love
As this college couple explore their secret hidden romance, intense feelings arise and emotions pour from their souls as they fight to control their attraction for each other. When the past slowly reveals these two loving souls their hunger grows and their bodies betray themselves. Nixon has some extremely hot eager kisses he lays on his leading lady. Trace cannot get enough of her main man’s possessive embraces and protective arms.
“Why did he have to be so beautiful? Why did his touch make me want to sell my soul?” ~Trace~
“I would have kissed you harder, fought for you more, stolen you away, taken your virtue, made myself so permanently etched on your person that every time you took a breath it was my scent that was permeating the air.” ~Nixon~
All in all I cannot get enough of this high powered alpha male mafia style romance and I’m about to explore the secondary characters that have me enthralled with all the suspense, thrills, romance, and secretive espionage this Author has for me!
Thank you Rachel Van Dyken!

Arks of Octava
The Scribbler Guardian
by: Bestselling Author
Add to TBR!!
Fantasy Romance Series, The Trilogy Begins
Jeramiah Poe isn’t just any character in the Realm of Fiction; he is Muse Master—Destiny Diviner—Mysterious Miskriat. Being of neither the Traditional Genre Provinces nor Independent, Poe enjoys an eternal lease on life, so long as his Scribbler keeps him out of publication.
Poe meets Kane, a seven-year-old boy from the Independent Horror Province, where he learns ancient codes are being broken and the horror that should be an act, is real.
But the evil clutching Octava is not new and Seven Arks have been sent to Earth to stop it.
Only something has gone wrong and Poe is commissioned as the 8th Ark of Octava to discover what has become of the Seven.
But his passage to Earth comes with revelations he’s not prepared for. Not only does his Scribbler not know of his existence, he’s a she that his human form seems allergic to.
Poe soon realizes that with each Ark he locates, his powers grow along with his feelings for the Scribbler. And the enemy will try and use both to gain control of the two realms.
“Mr. Poe?” Poe turned abruptly at the worried sound of Kane’s voice, and panicked at seeing his body had gone translucent. “I have to go now, Mr. Poe.”
“What’s wrong?” Poe reached for him and his hands passed through the boy. “Kane! Are you dying in your story?”
“I have to get back Mr. Poe. They’re coming now.”
“Why are you crying? You’ll come back first chance. I’ll be here. Do you know the name of your story, Kane?”
“I’m scared, Mr. Poe.”
The real fear in the boy’s voice alarmed him and before he could ask anything else, he was gone. A flash of panic sent Poe shooting into the air and out of the bog, aiming for Octava’s Athenaeum. He landed too quickly and went sprawling for several feet before bounding up and running up the hundred flight stairs of the realm’s library. Poe flashed his credentials as he walked in and the head Athenaeum Officer nodded. He didn’t have time to fiddle with the intricate Library’s search program and found instead the Librarian. “I need help locating a story, it’s direly important.”
The woman turned ever so slowly, her curt expression matching her pristine white dress-suit—the Athenaeum’s dress code. “Genre?”
“Horror,” he shot out.
She raised a brow for more information and Poe shook his head. “I don’t know, search them all.”
Her painful pace indicated the necessity of speed one never needed in Octava. “Do you happen to have a title?”
She shook her head with raised brows at the screen. “There are thousands here. We could be here all day and evening.” But her tone indicated that was quite fine, she had nothing better to do.
“Kane!” Poe forgot he could search by name in the cast. “There’s a character named Kane in it.”
“Not sure, I don’t think so, I think it’s his first.”
“I mean do you have a last name.”
“No, I don’t.” Poe wanted to strangle himself for not getting something so simple all this time.
“Traditional or non?”
“I don’t know,” Poe gasped.
The woman eyed Poe with confused concern before fluttering her fingers over the glass surface of the screen. “I find four possible matches.”
“The boy is seven. Look for a seven-year-old.”
“Ah. Sons of Insurrection. Has to be that one. It’s Independent and an SG. Paranormal Horror.”
“Coordinates,” Poe begged, trying not to yell.
He ran out the second she gave the information and took to the air upon exiting the building, barely missing several security officials in winged flight. Within five minutes, he landed at the story set. A dingy, rundown hospital with a dilapidation befitting the best of any horror story. The energy in the air sent a sensation through Poe that drew tiny bumps to the surface of his skin and a tingling along his spine.
Octava’s laws forbid anybody to barge right into a Story and so Poe had to carefully study the set around him. Spotting a lower window at the very bottom of the building, he hurried to it, remembering Kane’s comment about his playhouse under the stairs. Lowering to the ground he peered through the darkness. Nothing. Poe listened, closing his eyes, fighting to connect with the energy inside the insidious place.

Welcome to my world
My name is Lucian Bane and I’ve heard from many that I’m the odd one out. But really, I’m just a Husband, an Author, and a Christian Dom. Ah, maybe that’s the one that makes everybody pause. Oxymoron? Not at all.
As an author, I like to write stories—paranormal erotica—contemporary erotica and fantasy romance about men who honor, cherish, and protect the women they love. But more importantly, I also attempt to make these stories a reality for couples everywhere by teaching them in the form of fiction how to add heat and passion to marriages and relationships that might not have it. Teach them how to build life-long commitments that form strong families, like I have with my own beautiful wife.
I think there are many men like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. A map for women as well, to teach them how to bring out the Dom that exists within the men they call boyfriend or husband.
As young men, our inner Doms need a master to train them. I once bowed to my inner Dom’s reckless and tireless desires, but when I gave myself to God and conformed my will to His, the transformation made me into what I am today. What many would call an Ineffable Dom. But its equal term in the Vanilla world, in my opinion, is simply a real man.
You can find more on this series and Lucian at these links:
Lucian has several series out. Dom Wars, White Knight Dom Academy, Ruin, and now Arks of Octava, they can all be found on his Amazon page.
Reading, Writing and Book Review
5 roses – Clever & Unique Creativity
This clever and inventive way at looking at reality through the eyes of a fictional story brings one into a different perspective. This is a paradox of modern day fairytale folklore and delves deep within your psyche. The way the Author creates his characters and brings forth the long forgotten rhymes and tales is pure talented magic. The balance between realism and fantasy is genius and completely imprints all genres into one unique and fascinating romantic, suspenseful, thrilling delight.
“Look at me!” Kane chomped quickly on his carrot. “Ehhh.. what’s up doc!?”
5 -romantic hearts - couples connecting
The thing about Jeremiah Poe is his outward compassion and compulsion to ensure everyone else around him is happy and always supersedes his own needs. The connection between this unique couple is chalked full of emotion as they begin their journey together, you feel everything the author is describing to you as they explore their fascination toward each other. Every simple laugh, move, and touch they share is magnified by their need to know more, share more and experience everything.
“You’re going to get it. You’ll get it how I say. Like I say. When I say, Scribbler. I am Jeramiah Poe. Muse Rider – Diviner of Destinies… and you are my Muse.” ~Jeramiah Poe~
5 erotic lips - loving lusty scenes
Lucian Bane is not known as an erotic artist for nothing, yes he gives Jeramiah Poe his sexy time! These incredibly spicy escapades left me heavy breathing, heart pounding, blood rushing to every nerve, and writhing in some sort of painful yet rewarding fulfilling wonder! The fair spinster, Charlotte knows how to weave a powerful seduction spell all OVER her naïve hunk-o-hero!
“My… what a great big penis you have. The better to fuck you with my dear.”
~Charlotte a.k.a. J.P. Howe~
5 tears - emotional-thrilling-dramatic
The emotional discovery these characters brings out in you is everlasting. Kane is the real hero in this story and brought to life as you go through all feelings of rage, laughter, love, angst, and horror. This little light of love has the power to destroy the most darkest of souls. This character alone will keep you coming back for more, he brings out all the protective instincts, care, and nurturing parenthood could and ever would bring.
Open up your portal of musical imagination readers, this author has brought the BOOM down on fantasy/reality evolution.
“Fiction is just a mirror of reality for the most part. Many things that happen in fiction don’t even happen here. But as far as pain and sadness. Joy and love, life and death, it’s all real here. Here it’s real.”

i received this book in exchange for an honest review
Lost and Found
A FIVE PAW Read
I was given a copy of this book for a honest review…
Sarah, was a lot more confident then I first assumed she was and suffered from more guilt then I first thought. When she thought she did the right thing with Preston only to have him end up being killed she took on so much guilt due to her telling him no.
Vincent, he was more down to earth then you would think from the previous books. The always joking werewolve did it more out of a self defense so no one would know how much he was effected in the end by his fathers disappointment.
The epilogue I loved it! You get to see how each couple is doing in the end and how theyre all dealing with life now a days minus all the drama of being at war on a daily basis.
Till next time – Sweets Books
